The pond where Davidge and Sheegan meet for the first time is the same artificial pond custom-built for the model submarine scenes of Das Boot (1981), also directed by Wolfgang Petersen, as well as one or two scenes from The NeverEnding Story (1984), also a Petersen film. See more »
Zammis speaks as if English is a second language. Being a member of an alien species, it's possible that he might appear to have an "accent" because of differences in his physical vocal structures. But his vocabulary and syntax should be the same as that of Willis Davidge, his only teacher. See more »
It is not longer my life that matters. I am not fat, I am not lazy. Davidge... I await a new life.
A new life? From where?

The UK cinema version had been shortened by the distributors before release following negative reviews in the US and was then cut by 27 secs by the BBFC for a PG certificate with edits made to the severed ear sequence. The cuts were restored to the 1987 15-rated video release and the full US version was released on DVD in 2002. See more »
Relatively recent sci-fi blockbusters like The Matrix and Independence Day can't compare to a quality film like Enemy Mine. The movie is an exciting story of two marooned enemy space soldiers. They are indoctrinated with hate for each other's species, yet forced to live together to survive. Sound familiar?
The two soldiers learn to overcome their brainwashing about each other and learn to respect and love each other like brothers. What can be wrong with that? True moral story-telling ala the tv series "Star Trek".
The story keeps your interest with good special effects and space adventure on another world. The acting is very, very good. As many others have already noted, an overlooked and underrated film. Only the most jaded or immature could not find this an enjoyable movie. Highly recommend seeing it!
